Celebrate Canada’s 150th in Newfoundland. Find out what’s going on in St. John’s and on Fogo Island; the architecture, the art, the way of life on the edge of the earth.

Start in St. John’s with its eclectic mix of architecture; iconic jelly-bean coloured houses and the striking Rooms, the art and cultural centre. Enjoy the city’s vibrant food and music scene and take in a presentation at Memorial University.

Then enjoy four nights at the multi-award-winning Fogo Island Inn, a traditional yet contemporary masterpiece of modern architecture and design founded by Carleton alumna Zita Cobb. Community hosts share their own ‘salty Narnia’; a full program of land and sea excursions, foraging outings, and a visit to the outport town of Tilting.
